Can Richfield make it three section titles in a row?  They have a strong shot at it.  Today we preview the Spartans.

Key Wins in 20-21 (16-5)  Mankato West, South St. Paul, St Croix Lutheran, Columbia Heights, AHA, DeLaSalle

Oops: Alexandria, Minnehaha Academy, DeLaSalle, St Croix Lutheran

Moving On: Leading scorer and Mr. Basketball final five candidate Lamar Grayson has graduated taking his 23 points a game out of the line-up.  Third leading score Ryan Miles, the power forward/stretch four of the team has also graduated as has starting center Isaiah Casey-Hammond.  Reserve guard Kobie Daoheuang and back-up big man Chance Heddle have also moved on from high school. There is a lot of size that needs to be replaced and overall, three starters, five players from the rotation, and seven seniors are gone from last year.  

Returning Starters (2):  The good news for Richfield is their two returning starter are more than ready for a big role.  I believe guard Mitchell January Mitchell January 6'1" | SG Richfield | 2022 State MN - a 6’0 guard that just committed to play football at Drake - has a chance to move from a 12 point per game scorer to a 20 plus point a game guy among the metro
